Angelina Talks About Brad, Jen and Her Family

Angelina has never really spoken about falling in love with Brad and how their relationship developed. For the first time she is telling all about meeting him on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith, falling in love and the life they share with their three kids. She is also speaking a bit about meeting Jen. Here's more:

"Not as exciting as what a lot of people would like to believe," Jolie said. "We spent a lot of time contemplating and thinking and talking about what we both wanted in life and realized that we wanted very, very similar things."

"And then we just continued to take time. We remained very, very good friends - with this realization - for a long time," she added.

"And then life developed in a way where we could be together, where it felt like something we would do, we should do."

Jolie said she has only briefly met Aniston and would gladly sit down with her - but only of the "Friends" star asked to do so.

"I did [once meet Aniston], but it was not a proper meeting. We've, like, passed each other and said 'hi' briefly, shook hands. But not a real sit-down-and-talk kind of meeting," Jolie said.

"That would be her decision [for a long sit-down], and I would welcome it."

In her first in-depth words about life as half of Tinseltown's first couple, Jolie tells Vogue magazine she never wanted to ruin Pitt's marriage to actress Jennifer Aniston - it just happened that way.

"I didn't know much about exactly where Brad was in his personal life [when they met on the set of "Smith"]. But it was clear he was with his best friend, someone he loves and respects," Jolie said in a revealing interview in the magazine's January issue.

"And so we were both living, I suppose, very full lives."

Jolie said she was committed to life as a single mom when she was paired with Pitt in the espionage action flick.

"Brad was a huge surprise to me," she said. "I, like most people, had a very distant impression of him from . . . the media.

"I think we were the last two people who were looking for a relationship. I certainly wasn't," she said. "I was quite content to be a single mom."

The "Tomb Raider" babe admitted she was thrilled working with Pitt every day while shooting "Smith" in 2003 and 2004.

"Because of the film, we ended up being brought together to do all these crazy things, and I think we found this strange friendship and partnership that kind of just suddenly happened. I think a few months in I realized, 'God, I can't wait to get to work,' " she said.

"Whether it was shooting a scene or arguing about a scene or gun practice or dance class or doing stunts - anything we had to do with each other, we just found a lot of joy in it together and a lot of real teamwork. We just became kind of a pair."

While Jolie adamantly insisted she and Pitt were not seeking to pair up, the pouty-lipped bombshell confessed they were tempted to make more of what they had.

"And it took until, really, the end of the shoot for us, I think, to realize that it might mean something more than we'd earlier allowed ourselves to believe," Jolie said. "And both knowing that the reality of that was a big thing, something that was going to take a lot of serious consideration."

Jolie said she and Pitt remained "very, very good friends" after shooting "Smith." They were resigned to staying nothing more than pals, Jolie said, until Pitt and Aniston announced their breakup in early 2005.

Pitt and Aniston filed for divorce that spring, amid rampant reports that the Hollywood hunk had his eye on Jolie the whole time.

Vogue didn't directly press Jolie on whether she and Pitt fooled around behind Aniston's back. But Jolie said she realized, early on, that she shared a deep, emotional bond with Pitt before they formally hooked up post-Aniston.

"Not as exciting as what a lot of people would like to believe," Jolie said. "We spent a lot of time contemplating and thinking and talking about what we both wanted in life and realized that we wanted very, very similar things."

"And then we just continued to take time. We remained very, very good friends - with this realization - for a long time," she added.

"And then life developed in a way where we could be together, where it felt like something we would do, we should do."

Jolie said she has only briefly met Aniston and would gladly sit down with her - but only of the "Friends" star asked to do so.

"I did [once meet Aniston], but it was not a proper meeting. We've, like, passed each other and said 'hi' briefly, shook hands. But not a real sit-down-and-talk kind of meeting," Jolie said.

"That would be her decision [for a long sit-down], and I would welcome it."

Jolie said she doesn't plan to marry Pitt, but they're committed to raising their boy and two girls.

She gave birth to their daughter, Shiloh, earlier this year, after adopting Maddox from Cambodia in 2002 and taking in Zahara from Ethiopia in 2005.

"We both have been married before, so it's not marriage that's necessarily kept some people together.

"We are legally bound to our children, not to each other, and I think that's the most important thing," she said.

Jolie said she hasn't spoken to her dad, actor Jon Voight, for five years.

Although she keeps up with mom Marcheline Bertrand, Jolie said she doesn't allow many people into her inner circle.

"I don't trust anyone," Jolie admitted.

"I don't think it's a good thing. This is going to make you think that maybe I should get some therapy, but trust is such a bizarre word. I'd like to say that I trust my mother, but I also don't know if she might do something that she thinks is in my best interest.

Still, "I trust Brad will never do anything," she said.

But after a few moments, Jolie then added, "I don't know. I don't trust anybody completely."

Jolie said she won't wear emotions on her sleeve - because it wouldn't do her any good.

"It's not going to accomplish anything to cry. It's not going to help you to get a hug!" she said.

"I'm not a hugger. People make fun of me. It's something that I have a hard time with. If someone hugs me, I hold my breath. Snuggling, cuddling, hugging, crying . . . all that stuff makes me very uncomfortable."

Except when it comes to her kids, the star said.

"Oh, I love hugging my kids," she quickly added. "It's a different thing because you feel such a genuine grab from them."

The actress, once married to Hollywood bad-boy Billy Bob Thornton, conceded that she once lived life too close to the edge.

That all changed once she had children.

"I'm committed to the future now," Jolie said. "I'm committed to life. I think definitely before my son, I was a little nihilistic. But once I adopted Mad [Maddox], I knew I was never going to be intentionally self-destructive again."

"I'm starting to be able to see being 50 years old with the kids graduating from high school."

Vogue's glossy, 14-page spread on Jolie includes several shots by famed celebrity photographer Annie Leibovitz.

The 31-year-old Jolie managed to ooze sexuality in the magazine package, even as she showed off her passion for motorcycles and flying in the unforgiving California desert.

She's in the upcoming Robert De Niro spy thriller, "The Good Shepherd," starring alongside Matt Damon.

The flick premiered at the Ziegfeld Theater in Midtown last night, and she and Pitt immediately stole the show as soon as they hit the red carpet.

Jolie's next big flick will be portraying the wife of murdered journalist Daniel Pearl in "A Mighty Heart." It was a role that Aniston had once said she would "love" to play.

Jolie said it was her children - basically Maddox - who ultimately cemented her relationship with Pitt as a family.

One day, Maddox "just out of the blue called him Dad," she said. "It was amazing. We were playing with cars on the floor of a hotel room, and we both heard it and didn't say anything and just looked at each other.

"So that was probably the most defining moment, when he decided that we would all be a family," she said.

Jolie said that in addition to Pitt being a great dad, he has a "wicked sense of humor" and, "He's a great challenge to me."

"We're constantly in competition with each other," she said. "He's somebody I admire based on the way he lives his life."

NO way is it true. Where are the pictures? If I see pictures then I will believe that JA would ever have anything to do with KS. It's just some dumb story that someone made up. We didn't even hear about it on Pop.

Lol at 4real. Brad has been with Angelina. He stated he hated Jennifer Aniston, I feel sorry for Jennifer. She lost the sexiest man alive for being selfish. Now Brad is happy, with AJ and their 3 beautiful children. Jennifer is alone and miserable :( It was K-Fed that JA got a room with. So Sad.

My sister works at The Point in the Adirondacks and saw Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston checking in around 7P.M. recently.

Homewreckers. Im sorry but i just cant get over it. I dont see how just because they all look so pretty that its OKAY. She can adopt all the beautiful children she wants, it still WONT be okay. And i dont agree too much with this new Hollywood concept of "Ooo, let's have a bunch of illegitimate children, but NOT get married so WE wont have to go through divorce proceedings", as if the child's life wasnt messed up enough already... Gosh.

Jennifer said, Brad did not cheat. Brad and Jen's relationship was over, long before Jolie. Jolie is not a home wrecker. Brads not a cheater. Some of you sound like a broken record. The majority of people love them. They did win family of the year. Jennifer has moved on in her life, cant some of you haters do the same. ____________________________________________________________ I have moved on with my life! Jennifer Aniston

MBM She can spin it anyway she wants to...she still came between a husband & his wife. If she was really they way she talks about herself she would have let Brad end his marriage properly THEN get together. I'm glad they are happy & all that but I still can't get past he is a cheater & she is a home wrecker.

Hey, well after several months of just reading comments I am happy to be posting one finally! I'm probably jumping on this train a day or two late, but I just had an observation no one has brought up in this convo! So who left who!? From what I have read, Brad went to Jen (his best friend & wife) & told her honestly (as we should be in marriage) what was going on about his feelings with Angie. Didn't he, well according to the tabs at the time anyway (so who knows?), ask Jen for 3 more months, at least that amount of time to work this situation out between the two of them?! Sounds to me like he asked Jen to stay & she didn't!? Now, Jen was the one who filed for divorce right? It seems to me that JEN actually LEFT the marriage, NOT necessarily Brad! Anybody else get this? (Well if you're still around...lol.) Also him not going to the 'Friends' finale, is like her not going to visit him, but only once in 6 months, while he was filming Troy. My husband is in another state for several months, but we would both go nuts over not seeing each other for that amount of time! And we are absolutely poor as hell, pulling of taking the time from work, not to mention a plane ticket is like insanely difficult & even painful, & Jen is rich! But we LOVE each other. We HAVE to see each other! Anyway I love all three of them tremendously! I do. Not to mention the kids! Yes, I was a little sad when the marriage ended. But as I have gotten to know Angie I just eat up anything I can find on her, Brad & their kids! I just love them! Nite

And somewhere in L.A... in a dark room in a spacious mansion... Jennifer Aniston is sitting alone crying, reading how happy Brad and Angela are, as she scarfs down a box of Oreo cookies. *sniff* Oh, the plight of the rich and gorgeous!
